The foundation years
After many years at university I emerged poor but happy, with degrees in arts, law and public policy. I put these to use for State Government, landing a coveted spot on the graduate trainee program, and rose through the policy adviser ranks. Along the way I honed my writing skills through briefings, correspondence, budget papers and a thousand entertaining emails.
Twist in the road
A pause to grow children left a gaping hole in an otherwise promising resume. You know the tune.
Back on track
Hoping to bridge the gap, I dusted off my back pack and enrolled at university again, learning how to harness social media and text with two thumbs. And be a journalist.
I'm a hack for hire now, enjoying the fruits of my education and finding new markets for my skills. I write for print and online, pitching to magazines and small business - anywhere people value grammar, spelling, storytelling and a dry wit.
